I hired Bob a few weeks ago to tutor my 12 year old daughter in math which she was doing very poorly in Bob is absolutely Wonderful very patient very attentive and his Teaching methods seem to really work well I would absolutely recommend him to any parent whose child needs help in tutoring he's Awesome.
The training,"Optimizing Summer Programming for Student Success: Achieving Outcomes While Having Fun," was an amazingly dynamic experience. When I attend any professional development, I want a presenter who is authentic and knowledgeable; Syreeta's was both. Her activities were thought-provoking, engaging, and practical. The open and honest discussions involving both the teachers and mentors created a great starting point for working as partners this summer. Everyone in attendance left her workshop motivated to making our summer program successful. I wish we had been able to spend more with Syreeta and hope that I get the opportunity to work with her again!!!
Best tutor my son has used to date. Aaron was timely, prepared, and patient with my son who needed help with his Geometry homework. Somehow, Aaron made my son enjoy his homework!
Ms. Jill was excellent from the start. She met with my daughter for an initial "introduction" meeting before getting started with an actual tutoring session to ensure it would be a good fit and that my daughter would be comfortable with her. She spoke in length with me to get to know my child's strengths, weaknesses, personalities and what exactly I was looking for in a tutor. Ms. Jill really connects with my daughter and works to find out where she is weak in reading comprehension and vocabulary so she can help strengthen those weaknesses. My daughter has a learning difference and Ms. Jill has proven to be able to navigate through that to help her understand the information being taught. She is very patient, kind and understanding which makes it a great fit for my daughter who can at times be very sensitive and get frustrated when not catching on as quick as she would like to. In just a few sessions, Ms. Jill has helped boost her confidence and given her strategies to help with reading comprehension, synonyms, antonyms and vocabulary in school and during testing. I highly recommend Mrs. Max as a tutor, especially for children with learning differences. She really gets through and makes a difference.
Leah is an excellent tutor. She is well prepared and haa already helped our daughter
Brandon is hands down one of the most knowledgeable and patient Tutors to work with. He was able to answer ever question I ask. I never felt rushed and he made sure I understood before we moved on. I highly recommend him!!!!
Cynthia's teaching style is clever and different from how I learned Spanish years ago. I asked for conversational Spanish lessons and before I knew it she was teaching me how to say phrases that were relevant to MY life (my line of work, my hobbies, my animals etc.) it wasn't just basic regurgitation of standard phrases, it was a personal one-on-one lesson that would eventually allow me to talk about myself and my situations as opposed to the generic sayings I learned in high school (such as "I like ice cream" and "where is the library"). I'm thrilled with her approach and her knowledge of linguistics, she's very knowledgeable and personable! Incredibly happy with my sessions so far!
I normally get frustrated with makeup but I thoroughly enjoyed the makeup lesson she gave me. She showed me how to cover my dark circles WITHOUT CONCEALER!!! She was on time very professional and has a great personality!!!
Kevin helped me get an A in my data management course. His deep knowledge and understanding of access and excel was more than adequate to cover all areas of the course. What I liked most about Kevin's style of tutoring was his down to earth nature and his ability to put things in layman's terms so that I, as an adult blue collar returning student can relate to. I think this quality is unique among tutors, professors, and other academic types.
The people that I have dealt with and ask for tutoring I've been very kind very mentoring to my granddaughter she loves going there every week and her reading has gone from a first grade level up to almost of 4th grade level in less than a year she's excited to be learning how to read they have gone out of their way with my schedule so that I am able to get her there once a week I would recommend them to anyone
He was an excellent tutor! Class A act. Lots of energy. Attempts to make lessons relatable and as fun as Algebra can be. Showed up on or before time, each lesson. He was very sweet and a wonderful teacher!!!
My daughter always seemed to have panic attacks leading up to tests. I was desperate to find a way for her to be comfortable especially as SATs were coming up. All I can say is after a few weeks with the tutors and life coaches at Chelsea International Education, my daughter’s confidence level went up a lot. She was not only prepared to take her SATs but her core academic skills have improved tremendously, which has helped her with her AP exams. The fact that all of the Chelsea tutors are fully qualified teachers, I think makes a major difference and really sets them apart. It really is a quality service and I am very happy to recommend them to anyone.
Great tutor! Makes learning funMindy is very creative and kids love her enthusiasm. Highly recommend Mindy Tuff.
Ms. Musick has been working with my 9th grade daughter in Algebra II. I can't not say enough about how this tutoring has change my daughters math experience — she has gone from struggling with homework and tests to a consistent understanding of the math process. Additionally, she has gone up 2 full grades in the time that Nancy has been working with her. Nancy is a caring and patient teacher who has more then once adjusted her schedule to work with my daughter for tests and midterms. I highly recommend her services and greatly appreciate her professionalism.
Dr. Turner provided our son with high school math tutoring. Our son had a wonderful experience, he learned a lot and his math grade improved.

Coach Kelley is an expert tutor, and teacher. My son worked with her for 8 weeks. At first we thought this would be a short term agreement, but our son improved so much and liked her so much that we decided to keep her has his tutor now for two years. She has a busy schedule but I appreciate how she takes time out to help our son. She is also very flexible meeting him at the library or his school. I love Coach Kelley and the Ask For Tutoring Coaches. She is responsible for helping my son become a READY READER!!!! Book her today! - Lisa & Charles Rideout, Philly
Quick response, professionalism.
In addition to being professional, courteous, and knowledgeable, Mr. O'Brien was very patient with my son, who is not strong in math, especially calculus. With Mr. O'Brien's help, my son actually passed his finals -- and with a very good grade.
I am a certified and highly experienced teacher offering tutoring services for grades Pre-K through basic high school subjects and GED candidates.
This tutor was extremely instrumental in helping me pass my precalculus course. I never was strong in math and this course originally presented itself as as a challenge that could potentially prevent me from meeting my degree requirements. The "Guru" was very patient with me as he guided me through homework and how to tackle difficult precalc equations on a step by step approach. My tutor was persisistent and assisted me with problems until he and myself was at a comfortable state and did not stop until he felt that I had a clear and strong grasp of the material. His prices were very reasonable and he accommodated my schedule as well as making sure we had a suitable location in my area for us to meet on a weekly basis. The end results was receiving an "A" in this course which would have never been attainable without his help. I am truly grateful for Mr. Prakash and I strongly reccomend this tutor to anyone who struggles with math and specifically precalc and calc as I continue to work with him as I persue my degree.
